graphite and marker combos

My cool grey marker dieing half way through a drawing was a blessing in disguise. I didn't want the detail of greylead and found a chunky flat graphite pencil and observed the lighting with rough block-ins followed by black marker. It forced me to observe more precisely and be confident with the each marks I made on the paper. Think i will continue this next week.

It's a sunny day to build a straw hut

2014 has been super busy but an amazing year so far! I am learning how to push the limitations of colour in my paintings and I am slowly finding my digital brushwork voice. Many more 3 little pig pieces in the works, and I can not wait to share them with you.
